Just like Out of the Mist, this story about another Stewart sister was a bust. I've read other Ross books (i.e., Freefall, Blaze, Blue Bayou, Southern Comfort) & this one lacked the heat, organization, & excitement of her other books. Sexual chemistry & sex scenes were ok. Romance was woven with the suspense in a choppy, distracting way. Reading it was a chore since I had to sometimes go back a few pages to try to make sense of what was going on. Also, the heroine's reactions to all the current & past tragedies in her life was not very realistic or believable.
